Thanks again for all of your help & sorry it's taken me a while to get
back to you. I ran into the same error that Joshua did: svn: Invalid
config: unable to load PKCS#11 provider 'coolkey'.

(Just for kicks I also tried libcoolkey & libcoolkeypk11 with the same

I can confirm that I followed your instructions very precisely,
including the enable-module-path=/usr/lib/pkcs11 on the pakchois

The only deviations I had to make were:
- Had to compile libgrcypt from src (1.4.0 vs. RHEL5 rpm provided
- Had to compile libgpgerror from src (1.6 to meet libgcrypt dep)
- The configure for subversion 1.5.0 beta 1 required neon 0.28.1 vs.

I have attached a strace for your review, one can clearly see
libcoolkeypk11.so being accessed, but I'm not well versed enough in
strace to go much beyond that.

open("/usr/lib/pkcs11/libcoolkeypk11.so", O_RDONLY) = 4
512) = 512
fstat64(4, {st_mode=S_IFREG|0755, st_size=130744, ...}) = 0

Thanks again & let me know what else I can provide for you.

Did you configure pakchois using --enable-module-path=/usr/lib64/pkcs11?

If so, can you run svn under strace to check whether the coolkey .so is
being opened?
